Back Pain Answer A48900
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

Back pain is a symptom of numerous causes that involve abnormality or disease of the back muscles, bones, or nerves.

The commonest causes of chronic low back pain are lumbar strain, nerve irritation, bone and joint conditions (arthritis), osteoporosis, lumbar radiculopathy, narrowing or stenosis of the spinal cord cavity. Even bad posture can lead to low back pain. From your history that the back pain started after light exercise even piriformis syndrome is an important possibility. It is a neuromuscular disorder that occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed by the piriformis muscle causing pain and tingling and numbness.

You need to visit your local doctor or an orthopedic doctor who will examine you and request a few tests like an MRI Scan of the lower back to diagnose the problem. The treatment will depend on the cause of the pain.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
